CFLdb was created to provide information on the CFL. I saw a need to have an easily found reference source for fans. Years later my estimate for the size of this need has only grown. It is apparent that the number of new fans coming to the CFL bring little or no understanding of football or the Canadian rules and the CFL regulations and there is a strong desire to understand. I believe education not only produces better fans, but solidifies their support of the CFL with their increased understanding. To me this is obvious as the need to educate the marketplace on any product to increase adoption. As much as the CFL has been able to address things beyond survival in the last decade, I feel they fail to address this need and place obstacles in the way of those trying to do the work for them.
